Is There Anything in Your Life That Needs Restoration?
Like a classic car that needs restoration, each one of us must surrender our old basket case of a life to the Restorer who desires to return us to His original design. As He disassembles and renovates the unrestored or self-restored components of our lives, piece by piece, we begin to reflect His inspiration fashioned from clay in the garden of Eden. Our greatest value is revealed when the Restorer uses us to restore authenticity to others who are lost from their original design.
Restoration Road offers a raw and honest glimpse into the unique story of Mitch Kruse. Ride along with Mitch as he drives you through a modern-day parable that began on a dirt road, reached the hallowed halls of the rich and famous, and eventually led to the forgotten alleys of the poor.
Mitch’s honest storytelling takes you step-by-step as he shares his tragedies, triumphs and truths about the wisdom he discovered along the way. He examines the parables and teachings of Jesus in the light of his own spiritual journey and offers real-life applications for readers who want to live restored to their authentic design in both ministry and marketplace.
Discover the Master Key that unlocks your heart, desires, and three resources of life to restore you to the most valuable commodity in today’s culture – authenticity, reflecting the design of the Designer. Every sale, every relationship, every task, every decision in your life will come down to unlocking the gate to Restoration Road toward the destination of life that is priceless.
